Here is the jig I made using the same concepts that Tex talked about. Hendo did use a 14" saw so he had more depth to work with.

Thanks Tex/Russell, the swap of the jig bevel/angle design is where i was at in my head after lunch today but those pictures makes it much clearer. Again, this forum is worth it's weight (packet weight?) in gold!

Been a few weeks but I've been busy! July never seems to last as long as I want it to... A few days ago marked one year since starting this build. Tonight I got within four bricks of closing up the eighth course before I ran out of daylight. Things are going smoothly, just taking my time with a day or two break between courses to keep myself sane. This is the part of the build where you question how the crap you've gotten yourself into this big of a project...

Enough rambling, here's a few pictures:

Arch progress:


Sixth course (first full circle after arch tie-in):

Cloita,

You are putting right along. Going to pass me up soon. Do you think you need to buttress your arch?

Great Job! I live in Dyer IN not to far from you. How will finish your oven? enclose or leave as a dome? I'm curing my 42" Pompeii right now and will add and enclosure due to our winters.

Russell - hadn't thought about it, the design I'm following never mentioned need but I'll have to mull it over and see if I need it and if it will fit in my hearth.

Mark - Thanks! My plan is a stone finish to go with my stamped concrete, have not looked at materials yet. Congrats on curing your oven, I can't wait to get to that step. Hopefully I don't spend more time cooking than finishing my enclosure, I fear what a winter would do to an unfinished oven.

I've measured my shoulders a few times while fearing the day I'll have to go in through the arches... It's gonna be close
